Jaipur: The Rajasthan public service commission (RPSC) will appeal before the double bench of the Rajasthan high court against the single bench’s order over the RAS prelims exam result 2018. The single bench had recently directed RPSC to remove the question number 11 and 22 from the RAS prelims exam 2018 which was conducted on August 5 last year. The court has asked RPSC to release the revised merit list (RAS exam results) after removing the marks for these questions.

RPSC had sought legal opinion on the matter and decided to appeal before the double bench. The officials said that the RPSC’s legal team will present the arguments before the double as to why the revised results should not be issued.

The directions were issued by a single bench on Tuesday after hearing a petition by Pankaj Raj, Arvind and others.

The petitioner alleged that question number 11 was wrong as per its reference book and question number 22 had more than two correct answers in the options.

According to the officials, the dates for RAS main exam scheduled on June 25 and June 26 can be affected by this. Also, the students who cleared the RAS pre exam may fail and the ones who did not pass can be selected for the RAS mains in the revised results.

The RAS prelims 2018 exam was conducted on August 5 at 1454 centers in Rajasthan. More than 3 Lakh candidates had appeared in the exam for 1017 Vacancies.
